Romanian Rhapsody No. 1 in A major

Die Fledermaus is an utterly farcical operetta whose accessibility made it a sure-fire hit, beginning with its overture that is packed full of tunes from start to finish. The Blue Danube Waltz is probably the most famous waltz ever written; Strauss’s publisher is said to have received so many orders for the score that he supposedly had over a million copies printed.  Summer Evening is an affectional folk-style pastoral sound-scape and the Romanian Rhapsody provides tunes with a spontaneous air and a frenzied finale.

The Times described Leo Geyer's music as 'imaginative and beautifully shaped'. Founded in 2014, the Pico Players is a dynamic and exciting orchestra that has performed numerous sell-out concerts.
